Adventures are not only for the young
26 September 2020 | by manumfernandesSee all my reviews

Surprisingly a great film with an important story to tell. The senior population are prone to be abandoned by their children. This man, Fernando Ulisses, upon seeing that his family went on vacation and left him on the hospital, decides that he has to walk out by himself, otherwise he will be there forever victim to the scrutiny of the other patients.

So he begins an adventure with this punk-rock girl, Inês, that he meets along the way. It could be a generic film, but it's very interesting and captivating with excellent acting. Rui Mendes and Mafalda Tavares are fantastic in the whole film and deliver heartfelt and sincere performances that work really well together.
